“Be not afeard,” wrote William Shakespeare. “The isle is full of noises.” In The Tempest Replica, a reinvention of Shakespeare’s play by Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite and her troupe Kidd Pivot, the isle is more a metaphor for captivity and desire, where faceless dancers help tell the story. Pite’s breathtaking work is a perfect storm of high drama, striking visuals, classical precision, and modern dance risks. Be not afeard, indeed.
